Training Center Grand Opening

Please join us July 17, 4:15 p.m., for the Grand Opening of the Waterloo Public Library's new Training Center.

The 15 seat computer classroom boasts high-end Dell Optilex computers with 17" flatscreen monitors. The workstations are equipped with Office 2007 Pro Plus running on Vista Business and are connected to our highspeed Internet pipe.

A $51,000 grant provided from the Black Hawk County Gaming Association gave us a start; funds from the City of Waterloo and the library's budget upgraded data, power, and HVAC services to modern standards.

Library personnel, with technical assistance from the State Library of Iowa completed the task of installation and configuration. The system is fast, secure, and very easy-to-use.

All that's left is for Mayor Hurley to cut the ribbon! We're ready to roll out classes on Word, Excel, Publisher, Picasa, Google Tools, Beginning Internet, Genealogy, and much more. Keep an eye on the library's website for class schedules.
